Red Pepper Tarts with a Mediterranean Flare

I made this Mediterranean inspired Red Pepper Tarts this past December but got busy and just now sharing it with y’all.

Okay, I’m not a huge olive fan and I made these tarts just for my husband. But, surprisingly, I really liked them myself. I did put fewer olives on my tarts and more in my husbands’.

He loves olives so he didn’t complain. And I love the taste of roasted red peppers, so I was happy. And who can resist a flaky crust? Tarts are so fun to make (once you get the hang of it) and even better to eat.
